"This is our contribution to the community especially that there is an increase of dengue cases in the province," said Capiz Police director Senior Supt. Josepheus Angan over dyVR RMN - Roxas City's "Targetanay sa Udto" program.
The province's top cop was the first to donate his blood among the policemen after the CPPO's flag raising rites. It was the second blood letting activity since Angan assumed as the provincial director of Capiz PNP in July 2008.
Angan replaced outgoing Capiz Police director Senior Supt. Roberto Villanueva.
The CPPO initiative was in time with the observance of Blood Donor's Month every July pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No.1021 dated June 9, 1997 and the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the National Blood Service Act of 1994.
The month-long observance aims to raise awareness of the need for quality and safe blood, thank and honor blood donors and encourage regular blood donation.
Donating blood is a healthy practice to keep healthy blood cells in the body produced by bone marrow. It also contributes in the steady supply of safe blood for use wherever and whenever it is needed to save lives. (PIA)
